Season 1 showed us his new home, who are his closest friends and family including his sister, Princess Mae, his mother, and his besties. Now in Season 2, Bretman’s career continues to grow and boom but sometimes that comes at the cost of family time.
According to MTV, the first episode focuses on the sibling relationship or lack of a relationship between Bretman and Princess Mae. “After a year of professional growth and success, Bretman Rock’s personal life crashes down around him. In order to heal the strained relationship with his sister, Princess Mae, they turn to therapy for answers.

One of the most popular music festivals, Coachella was back this past weekend after a 2 year hiatus. A huge lineup was set from Harry Styles, Billie Eillish, and The Weeknd headlining each night. However, Filipino musicians also take the stage like EYEDRESS and beabadoobee performing at the Sonora and Gobi stages. Besides the music, the fashion is one of the most talked about points during the 2-weekend festival and some of your favorite Filipino stars enjoyed the desert vibe while looking chic. Lets take look at some of the outfits worn in Weekend 1.
Vanessa and Stella Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens is the queen of Coachella and her outfits do not disappoint. The wanderlust looks she bought to the festival throughout the years is a staple that isn’t going anywhere. This year, the Hudgens sisters dress up in PowerPuff Girls colors in pink, blue, and green.
Nicole Scherzinger brings the animal print pattern to the desert. The outfit screams boho-chic plus it’s paired with oversized sunnies and accessories to complement, it’s perfect.
Valkyrae keeps it comfy and simple in a two-piece outfit with mesh pants. Whenever at Coachella, you definitely have to keep yourself cool so you can’t forget the bucket hat!
Ate Icy brings the color with reds, blues, and gold in her outfit. We’re loving the hair and the two-piece outfit designed with a textured pattern.
The E! Entertainment host hangs out at the Revolve Fest and talks to many of the celebrities passing by including Kim K. Erin keeps it cool and flowy with a white ensemble and a cute space bun. This outfit is going to the archive for summer fits!
The Chief Brand Officer for Revolve brings the groovy vibes to the festival. Hosting the Revolve pool party was the place to be with everyone from celebs to influencers popping by for drinks and IG-worthy backdrops.
A Sunday performer, EYEDRESS was in the middle of the action, hanging out in the pit with Jaden Smith. The Filipino artist stuck with the basics in an all-black outfit with brown chest strap.
Twitch host, Jen DeLeon went with a retro look in a halter and skirt combo. Her fit plus the backdrop behind one of the iconic Coachella structure, it didn’t miss. She’s there to cover all sorts of Coachella content from the sets, looking for the best outfits, best food, and more.
Miss Kay aka Keiffer
Miss Kay slays Coachella in a leather outfit. She blazes through the desert heat with a smile and a dope oversized leather blazer. We need to know where it’s from!
Bretman rocks all 3 days in different looks, but our favorite is the princess-inspired look rocking all the shimmers and glitters possible.
Bella keeps it fun and flirty in another retro pattern that’s sure to stick out. Her signature long braids adds to the look and can we talk about her leg warmers!
Jay-R and Mica
The couple take to the dessert in a desert appropriate rock and cowgirl themed outfit. Mica rocks a cowboy hat and mixes it with a boho-fringe top with boots for the dusty conditions. Jay-R keeps it rock-n-roll with KISS muscle tee ready to fend away the bright weather.
The Fil-British Coachella performer chose a young and fun mini dress outfit before taking the stage. She kept it chic and simple showing off her body artwork.
Can’t wait to see what kind of outfits will be at Weekend 2 of Coachella!
